    Question two action at the same time

    Good afternoon!

    Please tell me is it correct?

    When I was in the zoo, I saw thirty different kind of birds, but during I was being annoyed by the flies.

    Thank you a lot

    The word 'during' needs to qualify a noun: '...during the visit I was annoyed...' (you shouldn't use the present continuous here* - but this would be OK 'all through my lunch I was being...')

    PS * Probably! The flies might have been annoying you all the time, but I doubt it.
